New Sacramento Republic FC stadium renderings have been unveiled, showing a vision for a facility that backers hope will house an MLS expansion club.

“The new renderings demonstrate our continued forward progress on our MLS bid and how much work is taking place behind the scenes,” said Republic FC President & COO Ben Gumpert. “The additions to the existing stadium design provide an even better fan experience, including 360-degree circulation and lookout points from our stadium to our river and our downtown skyline. This has always been about building something that showcases the best of Sacramento and that remains core to our design.”

The renderings come as Sacramento looks to bolster its MLS expansion case under new lead investor Ron Burkle and his business partner, Matt Alvarez. Updates to the stadium build on the proposal developed under current Republic FC owner Kevin Nagle, who has led the organization since 2017, and make some additions. Among the changes are the addition of a 360-degree concourse pedestrian walkway, new canopy-level seating on the west side of the stadium and expanded field-level seating options.

Republic FC’s proposed MLS stadium would anchor a 31-acre parcel within the Downtown Railyards located east of 7th Street. The site also includes plans for an entertainment district adjacent to the stadium to extend use beyond game days for fans and visitors year-round. According to Republic FC, if an expansion slot is awarded by MLS, the club could begin construction on the stadium immediately with an estimated completion date in 2021.
